our local price has jumped 10 cents a gallon over night. speculators at work again trying to make a bigger profit. i have never seen a "Fishing Boat" with three outboard motors. the liberal news media don't know their butt from a hole in the ground. obummer will apologize again and bow to the Muslims and pay a healthy summ for the life lost, injured and damage to the boat. don't mess with the US Navy.
